In 2022, three teams in the MIH Interest Group have made progresses. The summary is as follows:
The Net-Zero team is created to help MIH members build climate-resilient EV supply chains and transition to net-zero carbon emissions. The team has developed a comprehensive framework for climate governance and carbon management to provide guidance to alliance members through member participation and cooperation mechanisms. The goal is to help supply chains address regulatory requirements and market trends, manage increasing climate-related risks, and effectively move towards net-zero transformation and sustainable development. In the next stage, the Net-Zero team will design a set of carbon competitiveness rating criteria for EV products to help members meet international standards, increase product competitiveness, and assist customers in choosing suppliers with lower carbon emissions and sustainable development trends. The group will also offer training programs and pilot projects to accelerate the introduction of carbon management in the MIH Platform.
Global Connectivity Team
Since the Global Connectivity team's establishment, it has held five bi-weekly group discussions and organized user cases into four categories: emergency communications, network connected services, ADAS, and autonomous driving (AD). The team has also released project roadmaps and working documents for each category and has been discussing POC architecture (satcom x UT x 5G NR) with MIH and all group members in order to meet the deadline for the debut of new global connectivity solutions for the MIH EV Platform.
Web3 in EV Team
The Web3 EV team conducted research in 2022 to explore the potential and application of blockchain technology in the electric vehicle ecosystem. The team focuses on building a Web3 platform to facilitate safe and reliable data exchange and expand user scenario services within the electric vehicle ecosystem. The team conducted a demonstration project for an open electric vehicle ecosystem to allow all members to participate in the innovation of the MIH ecosystem. The Web3 in EV team collected ideas from members on how to integrate their expertise into the development of a Web3 ecosystem within MIH and translated this information into research plans. The group also had in-depth discussions with industry partners to understand their expectations for the use of blockchain technology in the electric vehicle industry. This year, the Web3 in EV team focuses on two conceptual demonstration projects. One is a personal rating system that analyzes driving behavior data and uses DID wallets to create new user experiences, this can be applied to financial insurance, vehicle maintenance and value evaluation of the secondary market; the other is a supply chain information management system that uses blockchain infrastructure to improve the transparency of supply chain data exchange, while the anchor chain activity provides stability for carbon emissions data sharing, secures traceability for production information and saves time for bank on credit check.In the coming year, the Web3 in EV team will continue to study the potential for the application of blockchain technology in the electric vehicle ecosystem and bring solutions to real-world use cases in order to improve user experience.
